Don’t cross the border plea

SCOTS are being urged against crossing the border to bring in the New Year.

Nightclubs are closed in Scotland, but they’re still open across England, including in Carlisle.

But Deputy First Minister John Swinney is discouraging people to travel south as it would be “against the spirit of Scottish regulations”.

As case numbers reach “alarming rates” in Scotland, Mr Swinney told BBC Breakfast it would be “the wrong course of action” to cross the border: “Omicron is a serious threat to absolutely everybody within our society,” he said.

“We have all got to take measures to protect ourselves by limiting our social contacts and connections and by complying with the restrictions we have in place.

“I think it is the wrong course of action for people to take because we have a serious situation we have got to manage and we encourage everybody to play their part in addressing that.”

Meanwhile, the owner of Chancers Nightclub in Dumfries said the different regulations in England and Scotland are having a severe impact on business here.

Brian Armstrong said the hospitality business in Dumfries is being hit by people crossing the border to Carlisle or Newcastle for a night out or a weekend away.

“That’s a historical hit for us,” he told this newspaper. “But the different regulations in England and Scotland are having a severe impact.”
